An impressive semi-detached period house in a conservation area close to town centre

A fine semi-detached house thought to date from James Thomas Bedborough’s creation of Victorian houses, built around the mid 19th century in Clarence Crescent and the surrounding roads.

The house is arranged over five floors and faithful to its period, benefits from excellent ceiling heights, ornamental plasterwork, and decorative cornicing, high skirtings, open fireplaces and sash windows. The accommodation, equally suited to family living and entertaining, offers versatility and could be configured to provide additional bedrooms or receptions rooms, and the upper floor, with its kitchenette, two rooms and a shower room, could be utilised as au pair or guest accommodation.

On the ground floor, there are two elegant reception rooms: the drawing room featuring an ornate panelled ceiling, wood burning stove, and tall sash windows overlooking the garden, and the sitting room with ornate cornicing, sash window and fireplace. A study with a door providing direct access to the garden, and a cloakroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

The lower ground floor is host to the well-proportioned dining room and kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with a range of shaker-style units and a central island, Iroco wood and granite worksurfaces, integral appliances including useful double dishwasher drawers, and an Aga. There is an area for informal dining and a door providing access to the garden. The accommodation on this level further comprises a utility room, pantry, store room and a cloakroom.

On the first floor is the principal bedroom with a raised seating area beneath the window that allows a view of the spire of the Holy Trinity Church, and a spacious en suite bathroom fitted with a standalone bath under a stained glass window, a separate shower, and ‘his and her’ wash basins. There is an additional bedroom on this floor, along with a family bathroom and a dressing room that could be utilised as a bedroom if required, whilst on the second floor there are two further bedrooms, both with en suite facilities. On the landing, steps rise to French doors opening out to a roof terrace with views over Windsor town centre. The upper floor, as previously mentioned, could be used as guest or au pair accommodation, and comprises either two bedrooms or a bedroom and sitting room, along with kitchen area and a shower room.

Outside

At the front of the property, a gate opens into an enclosed garden a paved terrace and flower/shrub borders. To the rear, there is an area of lawn, a further paved area providing relaxation space, and a timber shed. The property also has the advantage of an area running from the front to rear of the house that is principally covered, supported by heavy iron posts that are believed to originate from the St. Pancras Ironworks Co.

Situation

The historic town of Windsor is one of the UK’s most prestigious locations, with Windsor Castle being the official residence of the Her Majesty the Queen. The town centre boasts a fine variety of stores and supermarkets, while some of the country’s finest restaurants are close by.

Leisure facilities are superb and plentiful, with world-class golf courses on Windsor’s doorstep, spectacular parks including the 4,800 acre Windsor Great Park, and the river Thames for boating and rowing. Within striking distance is The Long Walk, extending from Windsor Castle and providing a three mile walk to the renowned Copper Horse statue at the end.

Windsor is also fortunate to be in close proximity to numerous excellent schools, in both the state and independent sectors.

For the commuter, Windsor provides excellent transport links with two mainline stations offering fast services into London, while the nearby M4 (J6) provides easy access into London, the West Country and Heathrow Airport for nationwide and international travel.

Travelling westwards, exit the M4 (J6), proceed to the roundabout and take the first exit (A332 Windsor Relief Road).
